First of all I would like to thank my girlfriend Emma, for not only putting up with all my nerdy ventures, but also for taking the amazing red panda shot for the books cover! Love you Emma! Taylor Otwell, I love you too man, but in a totally manly way. Thanks for making a framework that’s a real pleasure to use, makes our code read like poetry, and for putting so much time, and passion into its development. Eric Barnes, Phill Sparks, Shawn McCool, Jason Lewis, Ian Landsman, thanks for all the support with the framework, and for allowing me to be part of a project with so much potential. To all my blog readers who took interest in my tutorials, thanks! Without you I would never have had the confidence to write a book.
